Raul Ramirez is a student in KidsTek’s Career Exploration class at Aurora Youth 4 Success’ summer program. He will be a senior at Gateway High School this year.
Raul stood out from the beginning of our summer program as not only a dedicated and kind individual, but also as student setting high goals for his future. Raul is planning on getting his college degree in the field of theoretical science and has already been offered a scholarship to CU-Boulder. While Raul is considering attending CU’s engineering program, he also plans on applying to Caltech, MIT, and Stanford.
Raul’s favorite subjects are anything and everything related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). “I really like all of my classes,” explains Raul, “but I think my favorites would probably be chemistry, physics, biology, calculus, engineering and writing.”
The KidsTek Career Exploration class that Raul is currently enrolled in has given the students opportunities to prepare not only for their future career ambitions, but also to help them to prepare for and apply to college. “What I’ve liked about this program is getting to interact with people who know about the industries I’m interested in,” says Raul, “and getting more familiar with College in Colorado and their career aptitude tests have been helpful, too.”
Thanks for being such an outstanding student, Raul!
